The Oldest House Gardens was the setting at 5 p.m. Saturday, May 9, 2015, for the marriage of Brittney Lynn Reese and Joseph Michael Schonder.

The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. David Reese, and the bridegroom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Leslie Schonder. Grandparents of the bride are Mr. and Mrs. Roger Colee, and the late Mr. and Mrs. Howard Reese. Grandparents of the bridegroom are Mr. and Mrs. James Hunt, Mr. and Mrs. Julian Goad, Ms. Virginia Schonder-Blackburn and the late Joseph Schonder.

The bride, given in marriage by her father, wore a Galina Signature floor-length ball gown of white organza with a sweetheart neckline. Her headdress was a chapel-length veil with a delicate comb of crystals and pearls. She carried a bouquet of white hydrangeas, cream mini calla lilies, white roses and cream spray roses.

Kalli Wallace was matron of honor, and Shauna Colee was maid of honor. Both wore a strapless satin short dress with pleating and a sweetheart neckline, in coral, and carried a bouquet of hydrangeas, white stargazers and white roses. Also attending the bride were Mallory McNeely, Rachel Meizus, Jessica Schonder and Taylor Schonder. The attendants also wore dresses matching that of the matron and maid of honor and carried bouquets of the same flowers.

Jessica Brumleve, escorted by her husband, Eric Brumleve, carried the unity sand keepsake vase, which was placed on the table between the bride and groom’s individual vials of decorative sand in coral and tan.

Matthew Schonder and Marc Schonder served as best men. Groomsmen were Brian Hudgins, Aaron Jackson, Austin Reese and Luke Taylor. The groomsmen wore tuxedos by Allure accented with a handmade starfish boutonniere.

Gordon Keller, Pastor, First Baptist Church, Chiefland, Florida, was the Marriage Officiant, and Dr. David Beauchamp, Pastor, Crescent Beach Baptist, lead the wedding reception dinner prayer to bless the special day.

The reception, hosted by the bride’s parents, was held at the St. Francis Barracks. An outside setting of hanging lights, table lanterns, driftwood and shells transformed the barracks into a unique beach setting. After the reception, the bride and groom left the reception in a horse-drawn carriage for a tour of the city before being dropped at the Historic Casa Monica Hotel.

The rehearsal dinner, hosted by the groom’s parents, was held at Creekside Dinery. An outdoor sports theme was the setting for the evening.

After a weekend stay at the historic Casa Monica Hotel, a two-day stay at Universal Orlando, and a seven-day Western Caribbean cruise to Haiti, Jamaica and Mexico aboard Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas, the newlyweds are residing in St. Augustine.Read more at:formal dresses

7 mistakes even healthy eaters make


7 mistakes even healthy eaters make

(Photo:yellow prom dresses)

People take the first step: vowing to eat well, starting now.

But the problem after that is that they don't learn from their mistakes and within a month or so, return to their poor eating habits. Here are seven of the most common diet mistakes...

Not eating enough protein with breakfast

You decide to eat healthy and choose a bowl of cereal with non-fat milk and a banana. An hour later, you start complaining of hunger. The protein from the milk is not going to keep you full until lunchtime. So, add a healthy fat to the cereal mix, like slivered almonds, or have a little extra protein — like a hard-boiled egg. It can make a big difference in your satiety level.

Having a snack

Most nutritionists recommend a mid-morning snack if it's going to be more than four hours between breakfast and lunch. But often, people misjudge the size of their snack and create another meal. Remember, a snack is a mini-meal, and it ought to be less than 200 calories. Plus, it should contain protein, healthy fat or both. If you aren't really hungry, there's probably no need for a snack at all.

Eating a salad for lunch

Dieters often boast they're eating salads for lunch, as if they think they're following the No. 1 weight-loss guideline. Some salads are healthy, and some are not so healthy. Croutons, bacon bits, lots of cheese and a creamy dressing can be just the tip of a diet disaster. Too much chicken, too much avocado and too much olive oil can push it over the edge.

Leaving the carb off the dinner plate

Believe it or not, you can lose weight and enjoy carbs with dinner. Many people think more protein on the plate is far better than adding a carb. However, it doesn't usually work out in the protein's favour. For example, a plain 225 gm chicken breast is around 375 calories, but if you were to eat a 113 gms serving and add a half cup of brown rice, you would save about 78 calories. Besides saving calories, you'll also be getting fibre, which overall may help with weight loss.

A flexible way to lose weight


USA, New Jersey, Jersey City, Woman eating almonds


When it comes to losing weight, finding an eating plan that offers flexibility and food variety makes it easier to create a sustainable foundation for healthier lifestyle choices.

Two important aspects of weight loss are understanding how your body uses the food you consume and selecting a program you can live with long-term.

On average, a person following a balanced diet consistent with dietary guidelines eats 2,000 calories a day, which translates into approximately 225 to 325 grams of carbohydrates a day. When you consume more carbohydrates than your body can handle, your body will store the carbs you are eating as fat which has a direct impact on weight gain.

This is why keeping track of the types and amount of carbohydrates in your diet will help you shed pounds. A scientifically-proven approach to maintaining weight loss is eating an optimal protein, high fiber, healthy fats, low-carb diet as it can keep you feeling full and satisfied and eliminates unnecessary snacking or overeating.

Atkins 40 is designed for people who have 40 pounds or less to lose. With a daily allowance of 40 grams net carbs, people can customize their diet with a wide variety of nutritious foods to lose weight and maintain it.

This approach focuses on the quality and quantity of carbs consumed, while avoiding or limiting added sugar and overly refined carbs such as white flour, which are low in nutritional value. Instead, you get your carbs from high-fiber vegetables and other good-for-you foods such as nuts and seeds, a variety of fruits, whole grains, legumes and dairy.

“Atkins 40 fits a variety of lifestyles and teaches people how to eat wholesome food for life,” said Colette Heimowitz, vice president of nutrition and education for Atkins Nutritionals, Inc. “It’s a simple approach that sets you up for long-term success by letting you eat more of the right foods without letting hunger take over your life.”

To understand how carbs can fit into a healthy meal plan, consider this typical day of meals for a person on Atkins 40:

Approximately 15 grams net carbs from high fiber vegetables

Remaining 25 grams net carbs from a list that includes foods such as Greek yogurt, fruit, nuts, whole grains and legumes

Three 4-6 ounce servings of protein such as fish, poultry, meats, eggs or vegetarian sources of protein

2-4 servings of healthy fats throughout the day

6-8 glasses of water

A daily multi-vitamin

For example, on an average day you might start with 1/2 cup oat bran with 1/4 cup strawberries and 1/4 cup pecans, followed by a mid-morning snack of 1/2 cup red peppers and half a dozen cherry tomatoes with a side of 2 tablespoons creamy dressing or hummus. Lunch could consist of a salad with romaine lettuce topped with 4-6 ounces salmon and 2 tablespoons Caesar dressing. For a late afternoon snack, you could have 1/2 cup cottage cheese with half a peach. To conclude your day, you could eat 4-6 ounces grilled chicken with a side of asparagus for dinner, with a fresh mozzarella and tomato salad.Read more

Alexa Chung scared of starting own fashion label


(Photo:uk prom dresses)

Alexa Chung has revealed she's terrified at the prospect of starting her own fashion label but is hoping to learn a lot from the experience.

The 31-year-old model has revealed she's going to start designing her own line of clothes, and - although a date is yet to be set for its release - she has admitted she's nervous about the prospect.

She said: ''Yeah, I'm going to (start my own fashion label). It seems scary. But everything else has been scary, in hindsight. It's just that I didn't have time to think about it. I need to revisit that attitude and get on with it.

''Everything doesn't have to be perfect, I've realised. You can learn as you go.''

The British TV presenter - who has already designed two lines for AG Jeans - creates clothes to reflect her own tastes and added she always keeps the unpredictable UK weather in mind.

Speaking to the Daily Telegraph newspaper's Stella magazine about her new US girl-gang-inspired line for the denim brand, Alexa said: ''I wanted all those things myself, but lots of people said, 'Can't you do something that I can wear?' Like, 'Oh, for God's sake, grow up, Alexa.' I really wanted this skirt [A-line in a 1970s style] and little blouses. I do like a blouse.

''I just can't help myself. Even if I'm in California trying to do a girl-gang collection, I want to make things that are weather appropriate [for the UK]. I can't throw caution to the wind without putting a cagoule on.''Read more here:formal dresses online

Bittinger: Historic Wedding Dresses


Bittinger: Historic Wedding Dresses
Weddings bring friends and families together, and a new wedding gown exhibit in Woodstock has also brought townspeople together as they’ve gone through dresser drawers and attic trunks for heirloom wedding gowns and accessories for the exhibit “Love in Woodstock” from 1780 to 2015. They’ve also looked through family albums for pictures featuring these gowns, now on display at the Dana House, circa 1807, located on Elm Street in downtown Woodstock.

Our contemporary idea of a wedding gown seems to have begun when Britain’s Queen Victoria married Prince Albert in 1840, in a magnificent white satin and lace dress that - most importantly - was white.

Late 18th century green wedding gown

photograph:long prom dresses

Before Victoria’s big splash on the international stage, American brides usually wore the best dress they already owned for a parlor wedding at home. The dress was usually not pure white, nor the focal point of a large church ceremony. After Victoria, Godey’s Lady’s Book in America declared the white wedding dress a symbol “of the purity and innocence of girlhood, and represents … the unsullied heart now yielding to the chosen one.”

Woodstock brides too, changed with the times. Some of the dresses look uncomfortable with their corsets and crinolines and one ultra-slimming dress didn’t bother with buttons or zippers but had to be sewn onto the bride.

Woodstock was a Shiretown and something of a fashion enclave. It became the county seat in 1786 and was one of the most populated towns in Vermont. It boasted a professional class, and when Charitie Scott Loomis married Charles Dana in 1848, her gown was embellished with silk and taffeta.

There are nineteen wedding gowns on display in this exhibit - many lovingly handed down through generations and worn by several brides in a single family – like the Hazen-McConway dress, that was worn by nine brides from 1903 to 2005. There’s a gown for each decade and 250 photos of happy wedding parties.

Matthew Powers, Director of the History Center, notes that some twenty years ago a local church sponsored fashion shows that featured wedding gowns – an event that may have added a little incentive to Woodstock’s practice of preserving wedding apparel.

Throughout the exhibit, Educational Coordinator Jennie Shurtleff has included educational features at a child’s eye level – so a young visitor can feel different types of silk, for example, or examine packets of cotton seeds.

Heirloom wedding dresses can be seen as both timeless memories and a fashion timeline. The exhibit at the Woodstock History Center offers the two in an interesting combination.
